Funeral Home Carp
Gone to be with his family and friends, Bobbie passed away shortly after his 90th birthday on Thursday, October 12, 2017. Survived by his sisters Mary Carroll (late Angus) and Betty Carroll (late Gerald). Predeceased by his father and mother Robert and Rose (nee Grace), and by brothers Jackie (late Marian), Raymond, Bill (Corky), and his sisters Grace O’Keefe (late Angus), and Margaret. Bobbie will be dearly missed by his nieces and nephews. A farmer all his life, he tended to his cattle and his beloved dogs. He enjoyed going to the local auction sales and always came home with a box of “trinkets”. Bobbie could be found down in his workshop, working on one of his many projects. Right up until his final days, he still had his sense of humour, which kept the nurses on their toes. The family would like to thank the amazing nurses and staff at the Rosamond Wing of the Almonte General Hospital for their kindness and compassion towards Bobbie. Family and friends may call at the Carp Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes 115 Rivington St., Carp, ON on Sunday, October 15th, 2017 from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm. A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Michael’s Roman Catholic Church, Corkery, on Monday, October 16th, 2017 at 11 am. Burial at the Parish Cemetery. For those who wish, memorial donations to the Rosamond Wing at the Almonte General Hospital would be appreciated.
